Reseña o resumen
This innovative textbook uses problem-based teaching models
Uses clinical problems as basis for learning the relevant neuroanatomy and neurophysiology
Provides illustrations that help the learner understand the way the central nervous system operates and how to integrate the clinical history and examination with the neuroanatomy
Includes new clinical vignettes, key points charts, brief anatomical review at chapter end, and a new chapter on impaired consciousness
Gives access to a website with video of both pediatric and adult neurological exam
This innovative textbook is modelled on problem-based learning. It bridges the gap between academic neuroanatomy and clinical neurology and effectively takes the reader from the classroom to the clinic, so that learning can be applied in practice.
This second edition has been updated and expanded to include many more clinical cases within both the book and the accompanying Wweb site. Significant additions include
abbreviated presentation of the history and neurologic examination of all the cases on the web site (now numbering over 50) within the text at the end of each of the clinical chapters.
new maps' -- visual representations of the clinical motor, sensory and reflex findings.
the web site further expands the cases presenting them in detail, and providing an expert' commentary to discuss the reasoning for the localization and etiological diagnosis.
This book and the associated Web site will be of practical value to all the professionals who deal with people who have neurological conditions, as well as being invaluable to medical students and residents. This includes physiatrists (rehabilitation medicine specialists), physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists, and nurses who specialize in the care of neurological patients. We think that this text will also be of value for family physicians and specialists in internal medicine and pediatrics, all of whom must differentiate between organic pathology of the nervous system and other conditions.
